Shots fired inside Westlake Tunnel, no apparent injuries
Bike officers were in Westlake Park last night when they heard several gunshots coming from inside the Westlake Metro bus tunnel late last night. Officers searched the area and did not locate any injured people, but did recover shell casings and bullet fragments from the Mezzanine level of the tunnel.
At about 11:40 pm last night, two West Precinct bicycle officers were patrolling Westlake Park when they heard several gunshots coming from inside the tunnel. They immediately broadcast that information on the police radio, and headed into the tunnel to investigate as additional officers responded to the scene. The officers saw several people fleeing the tunnel exit onto Pine Street and run southbound onto Third Avenue. Officers stopped one person who stated that he heard the shots, but did not witness the actual shooting.
Officers could not locate any actual witnesses to the shots fired. Seattle Police and King County Sheriff’s Office deputies worked together as six bullet casings and bullet fragments were recovered from the Mezzanine level at the bottom of the South escalator. Detectives are now reviewing surveillance video from inside the tunnel and surrounding businesses that may assist in identifying the suspect.

Man arrested for assaulting sandwich shop employee
Officer on-views a disturbance inside a sandwich shop. This morning at approximately 5:00 a.m. an officer on patrol observed a man inside a Subway sandwich shop at 2002 Fairview Av waving his arms and appeared to be yelling at the employee behind the counter. The employee ran outside, and the suspect followed.
The officer continued to observe and then saw the worker waving his arms to get his attention. The officer pulled into the parking lot and observed the suspect swing at the employee and kicks him twice in the leg. The officer got out of his car and ordered the suspect to the ground. The suspect was extremely agitated and refused to comply with the officer’s orders. The officer told the victim to go back inside the store and shut the door. The suspect became more agitated and also refused all orders and began moving towards the officer. The officer un-holstered his department issued Taser and once again ordered the suspect to the ground.
As other officers began arriving in the area, the suspect finally complied and went to the ground. He was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the precinct. According to the victim, the suspect had been inside the store for over two hours. The employee told the man that he could not sleep inside the store and needed to leave so that he could clean. The suspect became upset and attacked the victim. The victim sustained minor scrapes to his leg. The suspect was booked into King County Jail for Assault.
